Stop by a applience store ask for a few old oven racks, I had to promise fish for mine. build a plywood box that both racks well fit in with a little room at the bottom for one of them electric burners like you take camping, next go to a thrift store, and get a non-teflon coated pan, the ones that come in the boyscout cooking kit work great(put your wet chips in it). drill a few holes in the top in one of the holes place a turkey term. the hole thing for under 20 bucks (if you recycle wood)....one thing to note the door must be a slide type or to much smoke escapes, the great thing about a all wood smoker is the ease of controling the heat. the burner has a heat setting and the wood holds heat better then the little chief. I bilt mine with the plywood on the inside of the frame, this way the 4 2x4's that make up the corners are extended bigger then the box so I have legs that bring it up to waist level, I painted it up and is now in its 3 year of service, I have to replace the burner this year, but if I find a bigger pan it would have lasted longer the fish drip salty water into the rim and now the knod dont work, it still heats but looks bad so I well replace it....DJ
i built one last weekend out 24 gauge steel 1 piece of 4x8.probaly could throw whole dang deer in it,lots of welding and cutting though, set up to burn chunks of wood no burners to wear out.an ol fridge from the 60's is the best there is however.
